Tungabhadra flows into Andhra Pradesh
& telangana (along the borders) from Karnataka. It carries less water as compared to other rivers
Krishna and Godavari. Tungabhadra joins river Krishna in AP. There
are many pilgrimage centers including Jogulamba temple and Raghavendra
swamy temple on the banks of Tungabhadra.
Water of Tungabhadra is used for cultivation also. There is a dam in Karnataka over the river and canals are constructed for water diversion for use by the farming lands.
The length of river is nearly 500 km. It originates at Koodli at which place rivers Tunga and Bhadra meet in Karnataka. It originates in the Western Ghats and flows towards East.
It passes through Mahaboob nagar, Kurnool, Hospet, Alampur and Hampi. The river flows through the areas ruled by Sri Krishnadevaraya.
A lot of the waters are getting polluted due to industrial waste getting into it.
